    Good stuff. Trump is pulling a lot of strings. Can't wait to see how this will work out in the details.

    Over/under on what "8,000" actually means: line set at 1500.

    Does it matter at this point. He hasn't even taken office yet.

    FFS, stop rooting against your country to hate trump.

    Trump will be a mixed bag president. Some good, some bad.

    You destroy your own legitimacy by not recognizing the good.

    First it gets revised down to 4000. Then it will leak that One Web doesn't exist. Then of the remaining 1000 jobs we'll learn they're counting robots as people.

    All in exchange for obscene amounts of tax giveaways.

    These are part of the same jobs that Softbank already pledged to create here. SoftBank pledged 50,000 jobs. 5,000 will come from Sprint, 3,000 from OneWeb, the other 42,000 haven't been sourced yet.

    As much as I hate having to talk to a representative with a thick accent, IVRs are ten times worse.

    Not sure I would count on that. Apparently this is a point of disagreement between trump and Bannon. Well that is if you consider tech support skilled labor.

    Bannon is on the protectionist side, trump says we need skilled workers.

    Facts still matter.

    I'm not rooting against my country. I'm holding Trump's feet to the fire when he makes a claim and it turns out to be bullshit.

    You can't micro manage the entire US economy nor should you.

    Guaranteeing individuals companies massive tax breaks in return for keeping a pittance of jobs here is a stupid fucking strategy. We lose money this way.

    Trump does it for the good PR and that's it.

    Using his bully pulpit, business connections, and power of the office of president to fight for American jobs, or what used to be called industrial policy, before the free traders dominated our government.

    What a bunch of bullshit.

    You can create jobs without bribing corporations with fist fulls of cash.

    Hell the auto bailout was a government backed loan. Jobs were created and the American tax payers were payed back what they were owed with interest.

    Bro, I don't give a fuck about 8000 jobs.

    It's nothing.

    13 million jobs were created under Obama. Why doesn't anyone want to talk about that ever?

    FIAT money is not real.

    I will take the jobs over the electronic 1's and 0's, and money based on faith.

    If you don't like the tax breaks, then let's strip them from law when dems get back in office.

    It is easier to strip tax breaks then create jobs.

    I care not what trumps motivation is, only the result.

    Trump doesn't give a fuck about the result. As long as he can play it off as a win, he will.

    I give obama credit for stabilizing the economy. It was one of his greatest accomplishments, even if I do disagree with how it was done.

    The result was competent.

    Because it's really not as impressive as it sounds for a number of reasons.
    For example

    But yeah I actually agree those 'x thousand jobs back' news won't really save our country.
